SS-EMS-5500-SP

[5 MW 200 RPM SS-EMS For Electric Ship Propulsion]

 

With its superior Synchro-Sym electric machine system (SS-EMS) technology, Best Electric Machine (BEM) is specifically developing the SS-EMS-5500-SP, which is a self-contained "turn-key" electric motor or generator system (e.g., real time electronic control included) that focuses on the electric ship propulsion system market. Designed in accordance with computer-aided-design tool of Best Electric Machine (BEM-CAD) [1], the SS-EMS-5500-SP is a high torque 5000KW Continuous Power axial-flux (or disk shape) amorphous core synchronous electric machine system that motors or generates with over over 240,000 nm (176,200 ft-lb) of torque between a constant-torque speed range of 0-200 RPM (all within a 7 ft (2.0m) diameter by 37" (1.0 m) long by 15,000lb (7,500Kg) package that includes the integral brushless real time electronic controller). More details are provided in the table below.

 

The SS-EMS-5500-SP includes other unique state-of-art EMS technology. For instance, the SS-EMS-5500-SP will uniquely comprise highly efficient amorphous axial-flux cores [2] manufactured with MotorPrinter, which is the only 3D Printer of electric machines and the only practical method for manufacturing amorphous metal, axial-flux cores. The SS-EMS-5500-SP incorporates ports for active forced air cooling flow but with the wide range of applications preferring their own active cooling apparatus, the SS-EMS-5500-SP does not include active cooling apparatus. BEM has developed a cooling system to specifically cool SS-EMS technology for continuous operation at peak torque that is available to the customer at an optional cost.

 

Note: With patent-pending power stacking, SS-EMS Technology can be seamlessly stacked, which incrementally increases power and torque while preserving EMS diameter. For instance, power stacking (i.e., patent pending) six SS-EMS-5500-SP implements a 30 MW/200 RPM direct drive ship propulsion system that is 7' (2.0m) in diameter by 20' (6m) long and less than 90,000 lb (45000 Kg). Power Stacking has other advantages: 

  • Resiliency: Stack of SS-EMS-5500-SP continues to operate at reduced power with a failed SS-EMS;

  • Logistics: A single SS-EMS-5500-SP (15,000 lb/7,500Kg) of the stack or individual rotor and stator components of the SS-EMS-5500-SP (7500lb/3750Kg), which are actually the same components, can be conveniently hoisted to (or removed from) the ship and then assembled into the power stack with an integral gantry.

Note: A 5000KW/200RPM direct drive electric ship propulsion system was chosen for comparison with available competitor's 1-30MW superconductor ship electric propulsion system.

[1] Best Electric Machine designed the SS-EMS-5500-SP with our Best Electric Machine Computer Aided Design tool (BEM-CAD) based on approximate dimensions extrapolated from online images of Teslamotors induction motor. There are additional design requirements that have not been vetted, such as the compatible mounting frame, etc.

[2] Given the availability of materials, our intention is to manufacture amorphous metal cores or at least thin magnetic ribbon cores.

[3] Best Electric Machine Computer Aided Design tool (BEM-CAD) has been verified, which includes verification against existing electric machine systems, such as the Roadster's Induction Electric Machine System.  Although always outperforming cost-performance of any other electric machine system, some parameters of the production SS-EMS may vary upto 20% from the initial parameters calculated with BEM-CAD because of material substitution (e.g., to reduce cost), design compensation for cooling restrictions, etc.

[4] BEM chose the SS-EMS-5500-SP size because the larger size offers better standalone cooling potential at stall (i.e., zero) speed and ambient temperature.

[5] Port Voltage is based on the Roadster battery voltage as the de facto voltage for EV(s).

[6] SS-EMS-5500-SP efficiency includes electronic controller, core, and electrical losses but does not include friction losses or active cooling.

[7] Because of the symmetrical dual-ported transformer circuit topology, only SS-EMS can achieve maximum torque of more than eight times constant-torque.   But like any electric machine system operating at peak torque during EV acceleration or deceleration (for instance), efficiency is reduced under high current or maximum torque with the expectant temperature rise.  For equitable comparison with the competition, the 25o temperature rise time from ambient of 50o C without cooling and at stall speed with maximum torque is given. In consideration, a compact, low pressure, high efficiency active droplet cooling method based on variable ultrasonic nebulizer and variable speed blower combination is available from BEM that provides continuous operation at any torque.
